republicans are calling on the obama administration to declare the 19-year-old suspect an enemy combatant subject to the loss of four, so intelligence officials can continue to interrogate him for as long as they deem necessary. authorities captured him in watertown, mass. friday evening. they are invoking the public .afety exception he remains hospitalized under sedation and remains unclear what kind of communication they are able to have him at the moment. judy is on the phone from north carolina, independent line. good morning, and welcome to the program. caller: thank you. my thought on the issue is that we are a large nation, an all- inclusive nation, and i believe that the boy scouts is a private organization and has the right to determine who their membership is. i believe there should be a third organization that some of the gay-rights people should put into place, and that would be the rainbow scouts. then they can put all the lbb tea in anything they wanted, -- lgbt. republican senator tim scott delivering the republican response and focusing on the events of the past week, incl
screen the way that he is now. i think one of the lessons in the learning curve for president obama has been the importance of communication. a lot of different issues that are important to him to his presidency. you do have to have the presence. the whole purpose of these kinds of acts of terrorism is to destabilize you, make you afraid to get on the subway. to make you afraid to go into a mall. to make you afraid, no matter where you are, even if you're far from the actual incident. having sort of one person that is constantly communicating with you is very important. i mean we learned after 9/11 that when george w. bush didn't do it, rudy giuliani stepped in. so the whole country was waiting for him to come on the television for those first couple of weeks, because you didn't see the president. and i think president obama has learned the lesson that you do have to speak early, speak often, speak confidently and i'm glad he's kind of cautious, to be honest with you. i know sometimes there's a fetish in american for sort of bellicose language. it makes us feel we're going to get whoeve
. relieved citizens cheered in the streets. amazing sight. president obama appeared in the white house briefing room shortly after 10:00 p.m. to say thank goodness its over. certainly capturing the mood not only here in watertown but across this region. matt and savannah, back to you. >> where does this investigation go from here? nbc's justice correspondent pete williams has been working this story tirelessly around the clock. pete, good morning to you. >> matt, good morning. the justice department says it intends to put dzhokhar tsarnaev on trial in a regular civilian court using the rules that apply in any criminal trial and that's renewing a debate about how to try terrorists on american soil. as soon as he is physically ready, dzhokhar tsarnaev will be subjected to questioning by federal authorities but in the beginning he will not be given the usual miranda warning about the right to remain silent. instead, the government will invoke a rule that allows questioning a suspect without giving advice of rights. >> there is a public safety exemption in cases of national security and po
magazine unleased its 100 most influential people list of all time and president obama is on for the fourth time mischel obama, and kim junk un lindsey vonn make the list but her boyfriend, tiger woods did not. chris christie is on that too by the way. >> bill: all right. thank you, dan. what an extraordinary weekend. the lockdown was announced during the show, and we were sure that by the end of the show, that would have him, right? because they had that horrible crime scene thursday night when they thought they had robbed the 7-eleven. it turned out they didn't rob the 7-eleven but they were there at the time. and then they shot and killed senselessly it seems this officer. they hijack the car take off with this guy, go from atm to atm, big up $800, thrown him out of the car. he very cleverly -- i give him credit for doing it appropriately -- left his cell phone in the car so the police were able to track his car to watertown, one brother is killed, and the other brother goes on the lam. and that's when thigh lockdown the city. it went on and on
court and the statement taken from him cannot be used against him in that trial. >> while the obama administration has agreed to delay a reading of his miranda rights under a public safety exemption, secretary of defense chuck hagel has not seen evidence to link the bombings to terror groups. scrutiny turns to the fbi who reportedly questioned the older brother tamerlan in 2011 at the request of a foreign government. this is so interesting. of russia. the fbi told the a.p. despite interviewing him and relatives they did not find any activity. the agency dropped the ball. richard, i wonder if there is going to be a lot of questions and maybe even hearings out of this or what comes to mind just knowing those basic facts? >> there probably will be hearings of the fbi whether it learned more or could have done more. critics say that is monday morning quarterbacking. it ought to be about what we were talking about, what can we do to prevent or identify young people who are radicalized and how did we respond and how what did we learn about lockdowns. as the military would say it ought not
it this, but i feel like i should ask anyway, one of the things that obama administration did shortly after taking over from the bush administration is that president obama established an elite high value target special interrogation team. which he said that he would use for any high value terrorism targets that would be sort of the state of the art a-team on interrogations. this is a federal case. this guy is in fbi custody. is this the sort of case in which the president's a team on interrogation would be called in or would this be handled by your standard professional fbi interrogation team? >> i would say the high value target team would be in boston already and they want it interview this guy. these are u.s. citizens. and whatever the protocol that that high value team developed, is going to have to come into play. you remember, this guy came to the u.s. when he was 8 years old. he is a u.s. citizen. all of his rights are afforded but i would say that team is there. and if they are not the ones doing the interview, they are standing outside the door talking to the agent who are d
the police announced the capture. president obama then addressed the nation. >> boston police and state police and local police across the commonwealth of massachusetts responded with professionalism, and bravery over five long days. and tonight, because of their determined efforts, we've closed an important chapter in this tragedy. >> now, the other suspect that's dzhokhar's older brother, 26-year-old tamerlan tsarnaev was killed friday during a confrontation with police. authorities in boston suspended all mass transit friday and warned roughly 1 million people to stay indoors as the hunt for the remaining suspect played out. the brothers are the suspects in monday's marathon -- boston rather marathon bombings that killed three people and injured more than 180 others. the men are also suspected of killing an m.i.t. police officer while sitting in his vehicle friday night. let's go to watertown. nbc's luke russert is outside the hospital where the suspect is right now. good morning to you. take us through exactly how this 19-year-old suspect was caught? what are the details you've lear
about the bill. >> reporter: furious, president obama said the bill did not harm gun rights. >> this legislation met that test. and too many senators failed theirs. >> reporter: more anger erupted when a woman shouted at senators, shame on you. most republicans and four democrats from states with high gun ownership voted against expanding background checks. >> criminals do not submit to background checks now. they will not submit to expanded background checks. >> the way to stop violent crime is to stop violent criminals. >> reporter: the politics was about more than gun rights. later today, a bipartisan group of senators will roll out immigration reform. democrat senator joe manchin who fought hard to get enough votes on background checks found that with two politically hard votes, some senators chose immigration over guns. >> if you're looking at it and trying to evaluate it, they're saying maybe immigration and maybe guns on top of that might be too much for me to go home and explain. >> reporter: and many of those senators who voted no, toe me they had hearty most from t
on immigration, particularly in the congress. people a few immigration who said obama helped them. but he got himself arrested protesting the deportation policy in 2010. from what i understand it's been difficult for the president to figure out what his role is because he really is supposed to be doing the cheerleader role for the house and senate rather than actually being presidential in the sense of -- >> or negotiating. >> or negotiating. >> keep in mind when this was last being, the same concept was last being discussed in the bush administration, there were members of both the department of homeland security and the commerce department up on the hill every day when they were doing this i'm not seing that now. >> thank you very much for your time, appreciate it.

in this country since 9/11. and former top advisor to president obama, david axelrod, about how the white house is handling this situation. >>> but we begin in boston where the back bay has been transformed into a crime scene sealed off for blocks and law enforcement try to determine who was behind monday's deadly attack at the boston marathon. of course this all began at about ten minutes to 3:00 on monday. about four hours into the race when an explosion went off just yards from the finish line. then about 15 seconds later a second explosion about 500 feet down the road. at least three people were killed in the blasts, one of them was 8-year-old martin richard whose father was in the race. his mother and sister suffered serious injuries. at least 126 people are still hospitalized. ten of them possibly as many as 17 in critical condition following the attack. >> there was cloud everywhere and, yeah, it was loud. it was really, really loud and then people just chaos everywhere. >> there was just families all around us with kids yelling and screaming and -- i mean we just wanted to try and get a
. from the white house, president obama pledged to hunt down those responsible. >> make no mistake, we will get to the bottom of this and we will find out who did this. we'll find out why they did this. any responsible individuals, any responsible groups will feel the full weight of justice. >> reporter: monday was patriots day in massachusetts, and the boston marathon is usually a day of celebration. for many, it will now be remembered as a day of shock, sorrow, and terror. with regard to that search warrant in revere, massachusetts, we're told there are no suspects. they talked to a few individuals. they'll be talking to a lot of people, the fbi noting that we may talking to you, your neighbor and your friends. to get to the bottom of this. people running public transit here, are being met some times by random searches. >> we'll be speaking to some eyewitnesss to this tragedy in a up coof minutes. >>> savannah, more coverage to you. we'll get to nbc justice correspondent pete williams. as i turn to you, this news conference is going on, we know that officials did conduct two bomb swe
's going on at 1600 pennsylvania avenue. >> that's right, alex. president obama had a sweeping meeting in the situation room earlier today for about an hour with his entire national security team. updated and briefed on the evolving situation in boston. i can tell you that the white house is being very careful and very cautious in its reactions. because this is a developing story. i can also tell you that as of this hour, secretary john kerry, defense secretary chuck hagel and c.i.a. director john brennan are here for a previously scheduled meeting with the national security adviser. that is under way right now. that doesn't involve the president. will they discuss boston? that is certainly a high possibility giving the evolving events of the day. president obama has been briefed regularly throughout the day. and overnight. as the situation was developing. of course we have heard from the president, multiple times this week on monday. again on tuesday, we heard from him at that interfaith service yesterday in boston. will we hear from him again today? we don't know at this point. the w
you think, why you think this and they say they never got a response. >> the obama administration has okayed the suspension of the suspect's miranda rights. is that a temporary suspension? >> reporter: yes, by law it is. it's called the public safety exception to the miranda rule. normally you have to tell someone they have a right to remain silent and if you don't, then you can't use anything they tell you in court. so that's why the miranda warning is given. but there is an exception. you don't have to do it if there's a possible threat to public safety. and here obviously there's a concern about whether there are potential accomplices. investigators say they haven't found any. or other explosives. they say they haven't found any of those either but that's what they want to ask him. and this exception probably begins to expire the moment you invoke it so it's probably no good for more than a day or two but nonetheless they can do that. afterwards they'll have to give him his miranda warning and say whether he'll continue to answer questions. the justice department says even in very
of the obama administration to take anyone like this who creates a crime in the united states and treat them in the regular civilian justice system. they will take him away. when the appropriate time comes, begin to question him. >> pete, i got an e-mail using a term of art in law enforcement. somebody said, remember, this is a federal show. >> meaning the fbi is in charge. we have already heard some members of the senate say this person should be declared an enemy combatant, not given miranda warning and should be subject to a military-style interrogation. the obama administration will never go for that. they believe suspects who commit crimes here should be treated in the criminal justice system. that's what they will intend to do. >> michael leiter who was, among other things, in the room the night of the bin laden raid when it was planned and orders carried out from the situation room. former head of counter terrorism for this country, michael, walk us through what is likely to happen now. what's the first set of official eyeballs that will sit down across from or ride with this suspect.
phase of the case begins. the very complex legal process. an obama administration official telling nbc news tsarnaev will not be given a miranda warning when he's physically able to be interrogated after receiving medical treatment. instead, the official says the government will invoke a legal rule known as the public safety exception. that will allow investigators to question tsarnaev without first advising him of his right to remain silent and be afforded legal counsel. president obama used his weekly address today to praise law enforcement and those involved in tracking tsarnaev down. >> americans refused to be terrorized. ultimately, that's what we'll remember from this week. that's what will remain, the stories of heroism and kindness, resolve and resilience, generosity, and love. >> authorities caught up with the suspect after a tip from a watertown resident. he was hiding in a boat parked outside a home. he is now in a boston hospital and nbc's ron allen is joining me from there. ron, with a good afternoon to you, let's get the very latest on his condition. are you getting word
, president obama praising law enforcement in trackinging down the suspect, late last night after authorities announced they captured their man, this is what the president had to say. >> boston police and state police and local police across the come mop wealth of massachusetts responded with professionalism and bravery over five long days and tonight, because of their determined efforts, we have closed an important chapter in this tragedy. >> nbc's kristen welker at the white house for us. what's happening at the white house today? >> no events on the president's schedule but i can tell you behind the scenes, i have been told by administration officials, the president will be in contact with his national security team when necessary to monitor the ongoing developments in this investigation. you remember when president obama spoke last night, craig, he said there are a number of questions that need to be anticipated, included what motivated these two young men to take these hape noeinous action and of course did they have accomplices? that is the question everybody wants answered now. i don't
obama pledged to hunt down those reonsible. >> make no mistake, we will get to the bottom of this and we will find out who did this. we'll find out why they did this. any responsible individuals, any responsible groups will feel the full weight of justice. >> reporter: monday was patriots day in massachusetts, and the boston marathon is usually a day of celebration. for many, it will now be remembered as a day of shock, sorrow, and terror. boston will be back in business today except for this huge crime scene that extends behind me for about a mile, three blocks on either side, an area closed off to business owners and even residents who live in this area and savannah, we should note public transit passers have been warned there will be random searches on the "t" here of bags and other objects. >> lester in boston thank you so much. nbc's justice correspondent pete williams following overnight developments in the investigation. pete, good morning. it seems there is no clearer picture as to who may be behind this. >> i think that's certainly true although there is high hope that they will
. president obama spoke from the white house yesterday evening. >> we still do not know who did this or why. and people shouldn't jump to conclusions before we have all the facts. but make no mistake, we will get to the bottom of this. and we will find out who did this, we'll find out why they did this. any responsible individuals, any responsible groups will feel the full weight of justice. >> a theme of this year's race was 26 miles for 26 victims. a message of remembrance of the newtown school shooting. many of the victims' family members were there at the finish line tent yards from where the blasts occurred. you can imagine that, it is tuesday, april 16th, and we're live in boston this morning, just about five blocks from the site of double bombing, those explosions yesterday near the finish line of the boston marathon. joining us now we have with us for the whole show today, mike barnicle. and in new york, willie geist. you've been covering this since the story broke. we've been listening to your words, your reporting, your words of calm. a day later, how is this sinking in? >> well,
, thank you very much for joining us tonight. >> thank you, guys. >>> president obama spoke from the white house briefing room just after 6:00 tonight, about three hours after the explosions. >> i've directed the full resources of the federal government to help state and local authorities protect our people, increase security around the united states as necessary and investigate what happened. i just want to reiterate, we will find out who did this, and we would hold them accountable. >> msnbc news white house correspondent kristen welker. kristen, what is the latest reaction from the white house and the white house staff? >> reporter: well, senior administration officials say the president will continue to be updated on this situation throughout the evening. right now, they are approaching this as an act of terror. i'll read the latest statement. coming out of the white house, it says "any event with multiple explosive devices as this appears to be is clearly an act of terror and will be approached as an act of terror. however, we don't yet know who carried out this attack and a thorough

afternoon, also, in boston president obama speaking at the inter faith service in memory of those who lost their lives and were injured in the boston marathon had a message to these two guys right after the photos had been released. >> to those who carried this out and anyone who would do harm to our people, yes, we will find you. and, yes you will face justice >> bill: yes, we will find you. well, they found themselves, as i pointed out. the f.b.i. on their trail but these guys took -- they realized, thankfully that the f.b.i. was closing in. and so they decided they had to get out of the area. they started by robbing the 711 shooting and killing a m.i. t. security officer and car-jacking the car and going in this car chase this morning. ed davis, who is the police commissioner for boston said this one guy on the loose. >> we believe this to be a terrorist. we believe this to be a man who has come here to kill people. we need to get him in custody. >> timothy albin followed up by warning people, again, about the lone suspect at large. >> he should be conside
groups will feel the full weight of justice. >> president obama speaking this afternoon at the white house. we're joined now from washington by nbc's pete williams, our justice correspondent. what can you tell us in terms of further leads or directions of the investigation at this point? >> one of them is what you were talking to the congressman about. that's really how many were planted and frankly this is all over the map today. the most up to date information that i have tonight is they now believe there were just two devices. now this is very confusing because at least five other packages found on the street were deemed to be suspicious and were zroied. at first the thinking was some of them were actually explosive devices that didn't go off. but, the best information we have tonight is officials believe none of the other packages contained explosives. so that's one thing that they're looking at. secondly, they stress there is no suspect in custody. but we know that they're talking to a 20-year-old saudi man here on a student visa, he had burns and was running from the area. he i
, the president has visited communities who are suffering. i would not be surprised if we saw president obama take a trip to boston in the coming days. >> thank you very much of before we go to break, i want to reiterate is breaking news from pete williams, that it fathers bombs were explosives made of pressure cookers placed at the scene. likely in backpacks. the explosive charge, according to the information, could propel shrapnel and fragments of that pressure cooker itself at speeds of 3,300 feet per second. that's more than three times the speed of a .9 millimeter round fired from a gun. so we're getting more information on the actual material used to create that explosives and how they may have gone undetected by so many people if they were hidden in, as believed right now, backpacks. that is the latest information regarding the details of the explosives used. security now being ramped up at sporting events in los angeles, oklahoma, even london and germany. back to boston. tonight's celtics game has been canceled. up next, more on the complexity of securing large events that so many of us at
that president putin sent condolences to president obama following the terrorist attack in boston. a spokesman saying the two brothers never registered with the russian embassy in the russian consulate in new york and they posted this message on their website. i will read it to you. it said vladimir putin sends condolences to president obama following the attacks in boston and condemned the barbaric and said it requires gloenl community effort. that in part from the russian embassy. condolences from vladimir putin. roger cressy still with us as we wait for the briefing to start shortly in a matter of minutes. we were hearing for michelle kosinski. we got a better knowing of who they are and also the statements from those who knew the current 19-year-old. we will go to the "today" show. stand by. let's take a listen. provoked this? >> um, being losers. able to settle themselves as you can imagine. anything else to do with religion and islam is a fraud. it's a fake. i knew them when they were kids. we are muslims and ethnic >> if that happened, most likely. we made their life bringing bread to t
commissions. so i can understand where president bush and president obama have given to the department of justice the authority to move forward with the type of process that we have going on today. >> do you have questions about the fbi's tracking of the older suspect here who is now dead and whether something was missed? >> of course i do. and i think we should is ask those questions. that's our responsibility. i listened to mike rogers and i thought it he laid it out as a former fbi agent himself what we were faced with when we were asked these hard questions. we have to make sure as well, david, we give to the intelligence and law enforcement agencies, federal, state, and local, the resources they need to keep america safe. we live in a dangerous world. we live, also, in a free and open society we value very much. forward to keep americans safe at the marathon, at every other public event, we need to invest the resources that are necessary for law enforcement. >> is that a call, in fact, for re-examination of whether additional resources are needed to look at home grown terror and t
in serious condition. later this very hour, president obama and the city of boston as well as this nation will mark a moment of silence at 2:50 eastern time. the exact moment the first bomb exploded. bells will ring afterward. massachusetts governor deval patrick and thomas menino will be on hand of the neighborhood of 8-year-old vimd martin richard. also today the first funeral was held for the bombing victims. the capacity crowd mourned. krystle campbell, the 29-year-old at the finish line clearing on a friend. and later this evening, boston university will hold a memorial service for lu lingzi, the 23-year-old graduate, the student from china also killed in the blast. meanwhile as crews clean up the crime scene today, new questions about how the fbi interrogated tamerlan tsarnaev before the attacks. >> why didn't the fbi follow up on that? you combine the first interrogation, the first examination plus the subsequent act. when somebody is brought to your attention, you investigate and find nothing and then he carries out murders, you wonder, didn't you miss something in the investigati
to the department of defense for the obama administration. jay, good to see you again, thank you very much for being with us. you have been involved in so many of these issues. we wanted to talk to you, about your take-away about enemy combatant. judicial decisions in a number of cases can you clarify how long can this exception from your wisdom last. is it the point the arrest. or the point of communication? >> well first of all, it's important to remember that any time dangerous criminal, suspect, is arrested for terrorist acts, our first impulse when that suspect is from a foreign land or is of a certain religion, should not be a reach for the military. the military is not the only answer here. and i warned about that in office, the possibility of over militarization of our common terrorism efforts, it's a whole government effort. second, the notion of designating the suspect as an enemy combatant, i'm not even sure is legal. in this situation. to be part of the enemy force in the congressionally authorized armed conflict from 2001, the suspect would need to be either part of al qaeda or an assoc
